Default The next ocean runner 29 in the mold

My Ocean Runner 29 has made it in the mold. My wife and I are extremely excited. Now it's time to start making some decisions on how we want to finish it out. I am considering going with the following set up.
-twin Suzuki 200's
-Flat deck
-coffin box w/ actuator
-Windlass
-Rear seat
-and a pile of extra rod holders and cup holders
-leaning toward Garmin electronics but haven't decided on twin 7610xsv or 7612xsv... Does anybody know what will fit or the dash measurements?


I will keep posting pics as Carlos sends them!!

There are at least 3 other threads about building Ocean Runners going on right now. I would reach to NeverEasy2014 in that his boat is almost done and ask him about dash dimensions. Here's the link for his build:

Congratulations!!!

He makes three different consoles. 2 Are flush mount and 1 has a recessed area. The one with the recessed area is smallest. One of the flush mount/non recessed ones is 31" at smallest at the top. Not sure if that is biggest console or smaller

I think it will run just fine with 200 suzukies, if 50 mph is fine with you then they will work fine. A guy posted on my thread 300 zukes hit 62 mph I'm sure 200 will do at least 50 mph.

Never mind, I can see now that's before the fiberglass is in! To all you can see the flat spot pretty good in the picture! It's just reversed from what it is when out of mold.

That's the hell coat on the outside of hull. When they pull it out of mold the outside is done. Just the way the process goes

I'm more into efficiency than speed. The 200's will get it done, and it's roughly an extra 10k to step up to the V6 motors. Hard to justify on my budget. There is a guy that has been posting performance numbers on Florida Sportsman with 34 mph cruise at 2.2 mpg and hit the rev limiter at 50mph with the 4x24p prop. He's ordered a 4x26P.


As far as the paint, My understanding is lighter pastel colors they mix it in with the clear coat. If you choose a darker color it will be painted after it comes out of the mold.

I agree on the 200s. If my partner in boat didn't want the 300s I was on the bubble of trying to decide if the extra money was worth it.

I get to pick mine up this week finally. Let you know how it runs soon

I really think you should put V6's on that boat. a good friend of mine has one with a Yanmar diesel and you can tell the boat is very heavy. My best friend has a 25 Competition with twin 200 Zukes and it is the perfect power for that 25 Comp. The Ocean Runner is significantly bigger and heavier than the 25 Comp.

Look at the 150 Mercury.

Its as strong as either 200 Yamaha or 200 Suzuki 4cyl.

There are a few guides in the keys that have done side by side comparisons on 28WW and the 150 Mercury is the motor to go with.

The 200 Suzuki has not been getting great reviews with the commercial crowd, where the 300 Suzuki is one of the most respected.

The 25 compitition only weighs 300 to 400 lbs less than the 29 ocean runner. IMO the 200s will be perfect. I also saw a thread on here a while back a guy had twin 175s on the O.R. And was happy.

Wow. That's shocking. Feels so much lighter. 25 comp feels like a bobber. Also 4' loa you would think adds more weight. . I guess 200's would be the move then. Best of luck to the OP and congrats on the new boat.

What is the weight of the hull without motors? See 3800lbs on the interweb, if that is the case then the Zuke 200s are more then enough for that hull and you can get 50+mph without any problems.
